President Donald Trump insisted Thursday he had nothing to do with keeping the USS John S. McCain hidden from the site of his weekend speech in Japan. He said whoever had done so was well-meaning. I wasnt involved. I would not have done that. I was very angry with John McCain because he killed health care, Trump said, referring to the late senators deciding vote that killed a Senate GOP bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act. I was not a big fan of John McCain in any way, shape or form, Trump continued in comments to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House. Now, somebody did it because they thought I didnt like him, OK? And they were well-meaning. I will say, I didnt know anything about it. I would never have done that.

I appreciate how Trump is above board. Wish more common folk could see him as just that.
In fairness, the USS John McCain is named after the two admirals McCain, not their lesser descendant.
Totally agree with you.
Which guy is great?
You don’t know me well on here, do you?
I worked straight down the ####ing block from Trump and met him twice before anyone here ever thought of him as Presidential material.
Class act all the way.
“Whoever kept USS John McCain out of sight was well-meaning...”
Liberty was cancelled and the crew was probably pissed.
I not only met him, but did business with him. As you say, class act all the way.
Has it run aground or bashed a container ship yet? Maybe it was just in the shipyard.
and he could have added - he was one of the coup-plotters.
Well Stalin did lead the USSR to victory over the Third Reich. Rather a costly victory but a win is a win.
I hope the McCains are aware of this. :)
The captain likely did it.
No.....It didn’t happen at all. It was fake news.
We need to have a rule that says we take your name off of Navy ships after you get executed by a military tribunal.
No, I don’t know you. I was unclear if you were saying Trump was great or McCain was great. Thank you for your support for President Trump. I am also working hard for his re-election.
